The Stone Roses at The Kent and Curwen Men’s Spring 2019 show

David Beckham has been following the Stone Roses since his teenage years. “It’s my band! I am in awe of them,” said Beckham of the band, whom he was gushing over Sunday at The Kent & Curwen Men’s Spring 2019 show.

The Stone Roses were the inspiration for the brand’s spring 2019 show.

Kent & Curwen has collaborated with the band on a capsule collection for this season. The collection will include T-shirts showcasing John Squire’s arty album covers, sweats and some outerwear. The collection will be available for pre-order next week.

According to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report, next year is the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut album, another reason why Kent & Curwen jumped on the timing. The show venue, down the street from the Kent & Curwen London flagship, was filled with blown-up images of the band’s album covers while models walked to the Mancunian band’s songs that laid the foundation for Nineties Brit-pop.

“We were talking about taking the collection back to the Nineties, and that really struck home with me — especially my time in the Nineties in Manchester. I have a great relationship with the band, and spoke to them about working together,” said Beckham, who partly owns brands from Kent & Curwen to Women’s Wear Daily.

According to a 2018 Guardian report, The collection itself was presented in a communal dining room filled with red roses and band posters. Overhead, songs from the band’s debut, eponymous album played. Guitarist John Squires, whose artwork appears on some of the pieces, and bass player Mani were also in attendance.

Under the creative direction of Daniel Kearns, a designer who has worked at Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton, the collection bridged the brand’s trade heritage style and a 90s rave aesthetic. Wide-legged track pants, neoprene training tops, and soft butter leather cagoules sat alongside wool jackets and collegiate-style knits. Bootcut trousers came in block colours with a permanent crease. Wide bucket hats were badged, and shirts came scrawled with school handwriting, an elevated take on youth culture. The mood was somewhere between the post-industrial wasteland of Spike Island, the venue for a legendary Stone Roses gig, and the luxe tailoring of the venerated British fashion house according to a 2018 Guardian report.

I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
